You know a cassette is rad when you have to punch the holes yourself (see image).
As for the tunes, well, they're rad. "Gobstopper" is reminiscent of early Dinosaur Jr. "Watch" is another standout track. Basically, Crushstory was emo before there was a term for it.
Crushstory opened for several touring bands, including Tilt and Reverend Horton Heat. They also did a spot-on cover of "Strutter."

Three words brought us apart
